A friend of mine was a terror victim in Taj hotel.

Hello friends, I met a school friend of mine yesterday in a shopping mall and noticed quite a few changes in him. As we started chatting, school memories started to flow one after another and we couldn’t stop laughing remembering those days. Incidentally, He is now a hotel management graduate and working in Taj hotel, Mumbai where that unfortunate terror attack took place in November 2008. He told me that he was there in the hotel, and was rescued by the NSG (Soldiers) that night at around 3 am. And it has changed his life and his outlook towards life entirely. He said that I don’t delay things anymore. There are times when we say that “ well iam going to do this thing tomorrow” but for him there is no tomorrow. He has started to live in the present. And I can say he is a lot better person now to what he was earlier. I will remember this evening for a long time. Not because that terror attack occurred in my city but now a friend with whom I use to share my desk in school was involved in it. It also makes me think that how precious each and every second of our life is. So we better utilize it in doing some thing really good. Cheers, Tutul

Hi Tutul, That type of incidents are terrific for people involved in it directly or indirectly. We were also part of that indirectly. We received all updates about that terror attack, also affected our mind too. But always effect would be more for the person who has seen all these blood shed activities through his bare eyes. Those bad days of life always changes our thinking. Nowaday you cannot say you are going to live for tomorrow. Terror is todays dangerous problem which may involve us in future too. No one can escape himself/herself from this problem. So that type of change was obvious in your friends life. But life always say to go further dont stop. So leave all happyness,sadness behind and move further; that is life Happy mylotting!!
